James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative in that I work with my clients to unearth dysfunctional patterns of behaving or relating that are keeping them from the fulfilling lives and/or relationships they seek. As a solutions-focused psychotherapist I use complementary therapy approaches and techniques to teach clients new skills, increase understanding and insight, and build healthier lifestyle habits that are customized to address their unique therapy goals. My clients are encouraged to practice these new behaviors and ways of thinking between sessions so that the changes they make through our work together produce more satisfying and fulfilling lives.

My clients express that exploring their pain and worries in therapy with me is a healing and learning experience. I spend time really getting to know you - what works for you in your life, and where you feel "stuck" or unable to move forward. Then we will work together to set goals that feel workable and I will check-in frequently with you so that we both know when you are achieving your goals. Trust is paramount in therapy. I work hard to build a trusting and safe space for you.

Are you struggling to sort out some thoughts, memories or emotions...or maybe navigating through difficult relationships past or present? Do you need support to increase self-confidence and self-esteem? These are things that all people need to continually work on and keep sharp. Some have never had a good model or foundation to go off of and others may have had their foundation shaken by recent events. No matter the challenge or struggle you've had to seek professional support can be the most important key to beginning to feel better. Finding the therapist that you connect with and feel comfortable with key. I look forward to meeting to and seeing how I can help you.

I try to begin psychotherapy with a clean slate. By this I mean that I have my over 20 years of experience and training, but that I need to start all over again (to uniquely know you!) in terms of learning from the brand new patient what their world is like, what their struggles and symptoms are telling me to help guide us to help them find their way through their dilemmas, goals, and other important matters. I find that the therapy relationship gives us a unique perspective on what it is like to be who they are and look for clues in our work about what occurs for you in relationships, providing a way to learn about who you are in the context of our working relationship.

As life gets increasingly complex, occasionally we just need somebody to talk to… someone who cares, but who does not have a personal agenda with us… someone to bounce things off of, from whom we might acquire skills and tools that haven’t occurred to us, someone to walk with us as we sort things out. Psychotherapy gently facilitates the exploration and resolution of personal and/or interpersonal concerns according to our own specific individual needs and goals.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

Psychotherapy can be a frightening word because “psycho” brings up images of Norman Bates and he is certainly someone none of us want to be associated with. The truth is that psychotherapy is just a fancy word for counseling. If “therapy” is used alone, people ask if it is physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc. A prefix was needed to distinguish it from other therapies and unfortunately “psycho” was chosen. Please don’t let the word stop you from seeking any necessary help you may be seeking. Needing help doesn’t mean you are crazy or that you are weak. We all need help at various stages of our lives and if you are in need now, please let me assist you. Call me at 714-751-0888.
